I am in the process of selling some of the better US coins that were part of my 20th Century US Type set. When assembling my Type set in the early 90's I wanted to obtain nice Proof coins whenever they were available. 1942 was the last year that the Mercury dime was issued as a Proof. I wish my dad would have had a 1942 Proof set, but he didn't. When I purchased this coin it was not certified but was graded PR63 by the dealer. I was pleased with the coin and displayed it in a Capital holder for the past 25 years. When I decided to sell the coins in the Type set I submitted the better coins to ICG to provide an independent opinion of them. This 1942 Mercury dime has been graded PR63 by ICG. As I inspect this coin, there are two small marks on the obverse – one near the rim at the 6 O'clock position and the other near the designer's initials. These do not look like carbon spots, but rather like contact marks. On the reverse there is a small dark area near the D in United. Overall the coin has very good eye appeal. Since I believe a person should buy the coin and not the slab and am convinced grading is a matter of opinion, my policy is that I will accept the return of any coin that is not acceptable to the buyer for any reason. I only ask that the coin be returned in the slab in which it is delivered and that the buyer pay for the return shipping. I am offering free shipping for this coin. If you have any questions please ask.
